about

"But, on the other hand, Uncle Abner said that the person that had took a bull by the tail once had learnt sixty or seventy times as much as a person that hadn't, and said a person that started in to carry a cat home by the tail was gitting knowledge that was always going to be useful to him, and warn't ever going to grow dim or doubtful."

-- Mark Twain ("Tom Sawyer Abroad")

lyrics

I went out dreaming alone in a fog
I had remembered the way that you are.
A firecracker with a fuse lit by light of a star.
I remember the way that you were.

Watermelon fights on the lake where we'd sex up the rocks,
Trying hard to hold on to the start.
We'd run down to the tracks and stick our tongues down our hearts
Trying hard to hold on to the start.

Say hello to a world where everyone grows old
Probably will too, before you know it
(oh don't ask / don't ask why)

Say hello to a world where when we're happy we cry
And when we're not we just stand there laughing
(oh don't ask / oh don't ask / don't ask why)

All these feelings get lost over time,
Like they depended on you being mine.
Beating back blood and the love in our racing hearts
I realized just the way we are.

Say hello to a world where when you go you're gone
And you can't come back, not they way you'd wanna
(oh don't ask / don't ask why)

Say hello to a world where while you're here, you're god
And while you're god you'd best learn to enjoy it—

There's a world left to see, without you and me
'round the bend, my extraordinary friend

If you can catch a cat by the tail, you'll learn something (you can't learn any other way)

Catch a cat by the tail, there's still some things
(you can't learn any other way)

Catch a cat by the tail, you'll learn something
you can't learn any other way.
